Medical Emergencies

  • In the event someone has a medical emergency, remain calm and call 911 or use an Emergency Call Box to report the incident.
  • Do not move the victim unless he or she is in danger.
  • If you are trained to provide first aid, use pressure to stop bleeding and provide basic life support (CPR).
  • Comfort the patient and assure him/her that medical assistance is on the way.
  • Do not jeopardize your health or the health of the patient. Wait for professional help if you are not able to provide proper first aid safely.
  • If you provide first aid, consider if immediate action is required to save a life and if you will put yourself in jeopardy if you do.
  • Be aware of hazards associated with blood-borne pathogens. If you come in contact with suspected infectious material, wash the exposed area thoroughly with soap and water and seek medical attention.
  • The University Fire Department has an advanced life-support ambulance available 24 hours a day.
